A new overpowered weapon has emerged in Call of Duty: Warzone and Vanguard Season 3 that is taking players out with ease. This sniper is being labeled as "broken" by players, and may need to be patched in the next update before everyone is using it.

Warzone expert IceManIsaac highlighted the sniper in his May 1 video, explaining that the Type 99 can deal 300 damage to both the head and the chest within 44 meters. The Type 99 is quickly reviving the sniper category, with Kar98 and SwissK31 loadouts starting to appear less. With other long range weapons being tested, IceManIsaac discovered that this sniper is apparently broken, and will need to be patched.

For this loadout, there isn't a particular attachment that make this loadout overpowered. In fact, they are pretty simple attachments:

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Shiraishi 712mm Sniper
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 5-round mags
  • Ammo: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

It's hard to put a finger on what makes this Type 99 Sniper loadout so broken, but if you try it in your next Warzone match, you'll see the unexplainable phenomenon yourself. While we hope that the weapon will be patched before more players start using it all game long from close up, the Type 99 will be fun to try out while it lasts.
